In particular, I was on the hunt for orphan dinner plates ~ of a vintage flavor. Luck was on my side and here's a peek at my finds...
|These plates may just become...|
|something like this....|
|or maybe this...|
|or perhaps this!|
I managed to also find ~
|to be reborn as earring holders|
|fabulous organizer for alcohol inks and paint daubers for the studio|
|paint brush holder|
|not sure yet, but can't go wrong with milk glass|
Tuesday also happened to be McKenna's 6 week birthday. Happy 6 week Birthday, pretty girl!
On Wednesday, Nancy and I discovered that if you get to Olive Garden for lunch at 11:30 a.m., there's no waiting for a table! How great is that? We both enjoyed our soup, salad, and breadsticks lunch and the most wonderful conversation. We get together once a month, but never run out of things to talk about...do you find that with your friends, too?
Thursday was lunch at Casa Hess with Jennifer and dear sweet daughter Ava. I love spending time with a 4 year old, especially one as precious as Miss Ava. Her big sis, Olivia, was in school but I have to share a picture of this gorgeous mom and her darling daughters....
This was taken the day of Miss Olivia's First Holy Communion
|precious Miss O|
I don't think I shared this with you....it's a box I created for Olivia's First Holy Communion....
A couple of things I'm working on before I leave you this week...
I took the Lover-Lee's class over at Paper Whimsy and I'm busy creating these whimsical dollies ~ so primitive and so sweet...This is my first and she's created from wooden blocks, paper images which I transform into transparencies, and beads. Miss Dolly isn't finished yet but I'll be sure to share her with you when she's completed...
And a new necklace for an upcoming show....
|Fabulous packaging - didn't want to open, it was so beautiful!|
|the lovely card on the left has been covered with a layer of beeswax ~ encaustic is a favorite technique of mine!|
Well, I still have much to work on before those shows begin, so I'll leave you for now. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Have a beautiful week and I hope to see you again next Monday!
